    What do you say: "Happy New Years" or "Happy New Year"?

    What do you say:

    "Happy New Years"

    or

    "Happy New Year"


    I've heard both over the last 24 hours.

    or do you say something else?????

    For me, it's just a simple (and VERY non-offending) Happy New Year!!!

    Re: What do you say: "Happy New Years" or "Happy New Year"?

    I just say "Happy New Year" because I thought we were only celebrating one new year at a time.

    I wonder if people sometimes say "Happy New Years" because they are used to hearing of and talking about New Year's Eve celebrations?

    I've always said "Happy New Years" but I really mean happy new year. It's kind of like my habit with saying "Happy Valentime's Day" vs. the correct way.

    Oh, let's hope NOT!!! But now that you got me thinking about it, it's not the Chinese New Year, nor is it the Jewish New Year, . . . . look what you did with that PC talk

    Just thought there might be some other choices, like

    "Have a good one, eh?!?!"

    or something more original, or a new phrase for a new year.

    Re: What do you say: "Happy New Years" or "Happy New Year"?

    I wish someone a "Happy New Year" - the year is one, therefore it is singular.

    I sometimes have referred to "New Years..." in reference to New Years Eve.....just not saying the 'eve' part. Probably my bad.........but I'd never wish someone a "Happy New Years" - that's just grammatically wrong.
